The New York Jets got surprisingly solid quarterback play from Josh McCown before he broke his hand this season, but the 38-year-old was only a temporary solution for the team. Heading into the offseason, there’s a possibility that the Jets could start completely fresh at the quarterback position. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News has been led to believe that neither Bryce Petty nor Christian Hackenberg will be with the Jets in 2018. McCown could end up coming back for one more season, but he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Petty started three games after McCown injured his hand, and the third-year pro completed just 51.7 percent of his passes and threw one touchdown compared to three interceptions. He’s obviously not ready to start in the NFL, and it appears as though he may never be. Hackenberg has been an even bigger disappointment for the Jets. The 2016 second-round pick did not take a single snap this season, and Jets coach Todd Bowles said it was never a consideration to give the former Penn State star playing time down the stretch.
Jets could part ways with both Christian Hackenberg, Bryce Petty
